Philips have created four new models of Fidelio Docking Speakers specifically for Android smartphone users. I tried out the AS111, which at $169.95 is the cheapest of the models.
I was impressed with the quality sound that came out of the small compact unit. It sounded fantastic in our large living area, with great bass and clarity on a variety of types of music, from rock to pop to dubstep. Its user friendly Bluetooth linking the unit and android phone really stood out for me though. It meant I could keep my phone in my pocket and still listen to the music for a good distance (the signal worked between walls for about 15 metres). The Bluetooth also had clock and alarm synchronisation - the clock on the dock set itself when it connected to my phone through Bluetooth.
Philips also have a couple of android apps that you can use with the dock – the Fidelio app, giving you access to thousands of radio stations worldwide, and Songbird, which allows you to sync and update your music. The only con that I found with this dock is that to use the full potential of the Songbird features through the app you need to buy the full version of the app. But, at $3-4, it’s a con I can live with…
Overall, this Philips have created a fantastic speaker dock, and I’d recommend it for any Android user who isn’t planning on defecting to Apple any time soon.
